One reason people love Music ID apps is their immediacy: You hold your phone up in the air, tag a song, and then you know, more or less immediately, what that song is. This is one of the most magical things our modern phones can do — but even the old, dumb phones from ten years ago could do it, by essentially leaving Shazam a voicemail and getting a text message in return.

Spotify’s Bold New Transition from Streaming Music Service to Music Platform

Spotify’s Bold New Transition from Streaming Music Service to Music Platform | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Spotify today gave an update on the year to date and announced a host of new features.

5 Million Paying Subscribers

 

As expected Spotify has managed to hit the 5 million paying subscriber mark which is a fantastic achievement, as is the 1 million US paying subs also announced. That translates to 1 million new paying subscribers in just 3 months. Back in May I predicted that Spotify would hit 8 million paying subscriber in May 2013. It looks like that prediction is going to be in the right ball park.

 

Spotify’s official active user count is now 20 million, which interestingly is much closer to the Facebook reported 24 million – those numbers have been very far apart for the last 9 months or so. Which indicates that Spotify’s marketing funnel has got bigger as its profile in the US has grown. i.e. more people are trying out the free service. (See the graphic at the bottom of the page for a summary of Spotify’s numbers).

Spotify debuts new Discovery engine, Collection, and Follow, which lets users follow friends and celebrities

Spotify debuts new Discovery engine, Collection, and Follow, which lets users follow friends and celebrities | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

At an event in New York City today, Spotify announced a new Discover section to help users find new music on the service, a Collection section for holding all your music, and Follow, a place to keep up to date on celebrities. Spotify CEO and Founder Daniel Ek admitted that users say Spotify is great when you know what you want to listen to, but not so good when you don't — the genesis of the company's new features. Some examples of content boxes on the new Discover page are "You listen to David Guetta and Skrillex.

 

You might like Avicii," and "Since you follow The Knife, we recommend Deep Cuts for your collection." Ek said, "Tiles of cover art may not mean much... We wanted to give users the context that's missing." There also appears to be a recommendation engine for showing you artists that are touring near you.
